AsMark Twain duly noted, “He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who never asks is a fool forever.”

From a well-established question, we continue learning. With no questioning at all or even a poorly established question, we quickly come to believe only the answer we wanted to hear. Inquiry differentiates us and defines the person we will become.

Set yourself with an open mind to learn from your inquiries. Fall in love with the problem and not the ready-made solutions. Hold your interests in the learning process of contemplating and discovering a solution, rather than only determining the answer itself.

Dig into the details from your sound inquiries. Intend to learn more deeply along the way in your applied learning experiences to test what you have learned thus far.

“We learn more by looking for the answer to the question and not finding it than we did from learning the answer itself.” — Lloyd Alexander —
